Book Review: Back from the Dead by Nick Kyme

Posted on by 5WC in Book

In my mind, Necromunda is a dark and dirty, concrete dystopia. It’s where too many people are forced to exist in too smaller a space. Broken pipes spewing toxic sewage and exposed cabling jerry-wired beyond capacity. Where buildings collapse without warning and gang law turns a blind eye to murder, crime and suffering. This is …

Book Review: The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

Posted on by 5WC in Book

I think it is fair to say, that right now, I am essentially lost in a world of science fiction novels. That when it comes time to pick the next book to read I’m drifting firmly through the futuristic worlds of space. Whether it’s with the Games Workshop created, war-torn dystopia of the Necromunda Underhive, or …

Book Review: Survival Instinct by Andy Chambers

Posted on by 5WC in Book

It’s happened! I’ve finally found a Necromunda novel I truly like. There aren’t many named characters in the world of Necromunda, it’s much more about gangs, fighting for survival and territory, under the association of their respective noble houses, but there are one or two outsiders. Characters who stand alone. Arguably the most famous, and …

It was with tentative trepidation that, once again, I re-entered the Underhive; continuing my journey through the “Tales of the Underhive” omnibus of Necromunda novels.

Book Review: Junktion By Matthew Farrer

Having re-entered the world of Necromunda through, apparently, the wrong door with Outlander by Matt Keefe and, with over half a dozen other stories still waiting in line, I thought I really should find some sort of correct order. Google turned up nothing, an email to the Black Library customer service was little help either …

Book Review: Outlander by Matt Keefe

Posted on by 5WC in Book

Spend a few minutes looking through the book reviews or reading about my creative history and you’ll quickly realise I’m a fan of the worlds created by Games Workshop. I may not roll dice, or spend hours holding a paintbrush anymore, but I still draw great enjoyment from delving into the sci-fi and fantasy imaginations …

Book Review: The Last Days Of Ector by Guy Haley

Posted on by 5WC in Book

Last September I read a book by Guy Haley called Valedor. A Warhammer 40,000 story it recounts a battle between alien armies fighting for consumption or survival throughout an Imperial galaxy. Essentially Sci-Fi warfare. And while, I wasn’t overly impressed by the book, I did enjoy it and it certainly created a growing passion for …
